Over the past few years, her DJ career has taken off thanks to her full on energy and track selections. Korento best describes her style as, groovy, intelligent and uplifting with a slightly dirty edge. Look forward to a special electroswing set this time around!
Recently, she has started to fulfil her dreams to travel as a DJ, with her debut international gig in 2014 at '20th Vortex Parallel Universe', in South Africa, followed by Shankra Festival in Switzerland.
In these busy years her adventures have reached all the way to Brazil/Respect Festival and to many other beautiful countries around the world! And this is just the beginning. Awesome opportunities are waiting this versatile djane!

DWAAL is an oddball Finnish musical project that is a combination of psybient, trance, downtempo, video game music and electronic music in general. Dwaal has released two albums and more is on the way! The style varies from song to song, so the musical trip isn't going to get repetitive anytime soon. The rich melodies and rhythms will cover many moods from athmospheric chilling to danceable pulses.
The ancient magus known as ELYMAS has spent near two thousand years banished and adrift. They now reappear with their latest attempt to seize power and enact their revenge, via the means of making people dance.
Combining dancefloor techno with influences from the more experimental side of electronic music, contemporary neoclassical and jazz, this debut marks out the start of their ambition to engage, infect and inevitably dominate the minds of the listener - at first compelling to dance, eventually enthralling to worship.
FOREHARD is Producer, DJ and founder of the 2018 launched Inceptum Records.
He started making electronic music while he was 14 years old inspired by techno, acid and trance. These influences are still strongly in his music and LIVE sets.
'First Four’ is the Forehard debut release which is a beautiful EP with Detroit influences and this is the first part of Forehard's trilogy.
‘Second Infinity’ is trance music in its various forms with emotional touch.
‘Third void’ is banging oldskool techno and trance collision which ends the trilogy.

ILLMARI is a Helsinki-based rapper and spoken word performer. He has been touring the Finnish spoken word scene for several years with his introspective, complex and philosophical lyricism. The words ring true, carried by his inner demons and angels – intermingled with old school Dilla-influenced beats.

Jay is well known for his unique live shows all around the Europe, and his connections with the Europol. His music has a heavy emphasis over minimalist patterns, low bpm hustling, heart pounding bass lines, racing acid frequencies and earth shattering beats.
Man from the underground; JIMI has experienced with music as long as he can remember. His early musical years were much inspired by hiphop, funk and Jamaican beats and those genres continue to shape his sound. Most known for his disco and deep house dj sets, at Apupyörä he presents something rarely heard – a heavy and slow-burning analogue dub live.
KASUMISU doesn’t live by any rules or categorizations when it comes to music or identity. Simply put: the main ingredient in their dj sets is good music from many different genres (acid house, oldschool hardcore rave, artistic Parisian gabber, electro, indie dance, progressive & deep dub techno etc.).
Kasumisu will create a beautiful dream-like atmosphere with mesmerizing melodies and a demanding, irresistable groove on the dancefloor.
KUOPUS is a Finnish rap / spoken word artist. In their texts Kuopus moves between dreamy fantasy scapes and honest and revealing personal topics. Kuopus wants to shake the sexist structures in rap and tries to rap differently: about theirselves, sexuality and the surrounding reality. They are inspired by sex, queer and different kind of symbioses.
Kuopus is an artist project by a Finnish actor, Pietu Wikström. The project is Wikström's personal attempt to withstand shame, to laugh at themselves and to take seriously. The music is mostly produced by a Helsinki based violinist and a composer Elias Riipinen (Elia). Lyrics are in Finnish. Pronouns: they / them.

Using powerful emotion, clever and direct lyrics and catchy choruses she addresses and sheds light on a variety of different problems about the way the concurrent society around her often (mis)functions. Inspired by her life, and backed by talent, her tracks can guarantee an experience you won't soon forget.
The talented artist has already released a good handful of records, of which the latest, released under the label Tuore Records, is called Puoleni ("My Different Sides") LP. Through her craft, SeRoosa wants to decloak some of the taboos surrounding mental health issues and spirituality. Many of her tracks address these subjects, and the raw emotion behind both her delivery in studio, as well as her stage presence while performing are sure to not leave anyone cold.

TEXAS FAGGOTT are Pentti Slayer and Tim Thick, a psychedelic trance project from Finland, founded in 1996 with a third member, Francoise Faggott. Tim has been active as a member of Flippin' Bixies, Mandalavandalz, Flying Scorpions, Tea Chairs and others. Pentti has founded raggae label Fat Belt Records. They have played across the world - aside from Finland, they have played in Israel, Japan, India, Australia, USA, Mexico, New Zealand and further. The music is hilarious and serious, uplifting and chilling, and could be described as hill-billy style Psytrance.
According to Thick, the name Texas Faggott comes from a "faggott instrument", which they used to sample on some of their tracks, however their music and bizarre stage performances suggest otherwise. The "faggott instrument" may refer to bassoon, which is called fagotti in Finnish.
Texas Faggott are considered by many of their fans to be the 'gods' of Finnish, or Suomi-Style Psytrance (suomisaundi), and all music that has evolved from it. The group has collaborated with the Australian project The Zealator, the Swedish project Logic Bomb, portuguese artist Snikers and the Finnish projects Mac Mavis and Mullet Mohawk. The group has also remixed songs by famous Finnish pop/rock artists, for example Ultra Bra, Kingston Wall, Hidria Spacefolk and Notkea Rotta, and others such as Capella and Eat Static.
UHA is a relatively new face in Helsinki’s vibrant party scene but she’s already found her own approach to performing as a DJ. Her focus on music is highly analytical in both logical and emotional ways which can be heard in her well structured storytelling sets. Through music Uha reflects on her thoughts and emotions, as well as her insecurities and strengths. For her it’s not only about digging music but self development and exploration as well. In party culture she appreciates community, openness and freedom to be whatever you want to be.

SALAMARI SOUND SYSTEM – a heatwave behind the soundwise guidance
”Our sound system was built four years ago in a desperate lack of a proper actively running sound in the area of Kanta-Häme. Founder of the sound, Joona Venäläinen, was constantly getting more and more interested in the sound design and the air motion that we hear as a sound, that has the power of moving mountains and breaking the barriers. We wanted to experience music as a physical thing, just like we had had the chance to experience it during the past years in the dances and parties organized by other sound systems.
Our mission is to offer a customly designed and built high quality sound for the real experience in music and in all of its frequencies. Things that might move us and our thoughts, change our perspectives and alter our consciousness in a spectacular way that nothing else can compete.
We feel that the rythm and the music exists to unite people and vibes and the mighty Salamari Sound System is our teaching tool to complish that task in a way like we feel it should be done. We create the sound.”

GEKKOPELI: Taas Myöhässä is a video game developed as a part of the theatre performance Kempin Kisat. In it the player will control Gekko, a character from Kempin Kisat, with a Wii balance board. The game plays as an old school platformer: pick up as many cola cans as possible as fast as you can and get to the end.
There are two endings, depending on whether you make it to top ten or not. It incorporates silly physical animation, great pumping soundtrack, multiple different paths to take (although the best players found ways to combine all the different routes for maximal points) and a lot of secrets to uncover.
